In case of carboxylic acids the OH bond is more polar due to the presence of carbonyl group.
The C=O group attracts more electrons towards itself which makes the -OH more polar. Due to higher polarity the magnitude of H-bonding also increase considerably in case of carboxylic acids as compared to alcohols. So the boiling point of carboxylic acids also increase.
